Fr. Shannon Collins on The Weapon - IHM National Conference Notes

The Albigensian heresies are much like today's heresies...a culture of death.  They condemned the body and so promoted suicide, euthanasia, recreational sex and a contraceptive mentality in an effort to reduce the number of sinful bodies.  Today, we see these ends receiving constitutional protection.

In the time of the Albigensian heresy, St. Dominic received the rosary from Our Lady, to chain the enemy. Each bead represented a rain of heavenly dew. Our Lady affirmed that if conversions were wanted, pray her psalter. 

Pope St. Pius X  urged every Catholic to pray the rosary daily to defeat the Turks in the Battle of Lepanto.  Out numbered, out navied, out gunned, he had seen in a vision the battle won with the weapon of the rosary prayers.

Fr. Shannon Collins - IHM National Conference - 2016

And once again, Father had us riveted and these are my notes from his talk the Rosary.  On and after August 1st you can get a copy of this talk at the site.

*  We live in times that test us.  Moral relativism holds sway, Church membership and leadership seems lethargic. Heaven's consistent message for the last 20 years is that this is NOT a springtime!

*  At LaSallete, Our Lady spoke of punishment and penance.

*  At Fatima, she spoke of  whole nations annihilated and Russia spreading her errors. 

*  With threats of heaven-sent chastisement, things look dark.  The devil has his hour, as the Lord said he would. But, God will have his day!

*  Blessed Anna Maria Taigi, mystic and advisor to Pope Pius IV foretold of a time of trial and tribulation to come upon the world. Three days and nights of darkness, pestilence and foul air and, remaining in our home, our survival kits to be blessed candles and rosary prayers for mercy.

*  Lady of Akita said the devil would infiltrate the Church members and Cardinal would vs. Cardinal and Bishop would vs. Bishop and fire would reign down from heaven. 

*  The Immaculate Heart of Mary would triumph in the end  and Christ is King.

*  Each AVE is a seed that is planted in the garden of our souls. 

*  It's always darkest before the rising sun and Mary is the morning star. Restoration will come and we are the  great apostles of the last days.

*  Father suggested everyone read and own St. Louis de Montfort's True Devotion.

Thank you, Mrs. J. I am always hopeful that someone who didn't have the chance to come to the conferences might find the notes helpful or confirming. God bless!
